Big Picture: The USAREUR Story: Part II
DVD Copied by Liz Pruszko - Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). THE BIG PICTURE spotlights the massive power and technical prowess of USAREUR, The United States Army in Europe. In two, thirty minute documentaries filmed in Europe by THE BIG PICTURE camera crews, the amazing story of what it takes to equip, train and back up the soldiers who defend the freedom of the Western Alliance unfolds in sight and sound. Scenes never before seen on film relate in graphic detail the scope and readiness of men and machines - from the massed might of the American Fourth Armored Division to the colorful spectacle of Italian Bersaglieri and Alpini troops. These forces are part of NATO which stands with USAREUR as a most effective deterrent to any would be aggressor.
